The Mission, Values and Strategy of Open Source Collective
Our mission is to promote sustainability and health in the open source ecosystem, while working to benefit all those who create and use open source software.
To create an environment where it is as rewarding and financially secure to build and maintain software for the commons as it is for corporations.
Impact: we are not a neutral platform
Collectivity: we are building collective power
Inclusivity: we are here for many different kinds of people
Honesty: we act with integrity
Transparency: we are authentically and accessibly open
Privacy: we respect individual privacy
Dignity: we treat others with respect
Sustainability and resilience: we are here for the long haul
In January 2022 we published our strategy which included three strategic goals to help us deliver on our mission:
Taking an ecosystem-wide approach to supporting open source software
Enabling projects to use their money as well as raise it
Make financially contributing to open source not only a good business decision but an easy one
